  • Wonderful week at the beach!


    This was our third visit to Zoe's Cottage and it was delightful. Early fall is the perfect time to visit the beach at Ocean View because the sun is still warm and the breezes are cool. There are lots of things to do, and uncrowded restaurants nearby. The cottage as always was cozy and comfortable. Looking forward to our next visit!

    We loved staying at Zoe’s cottage. The location was great, and the beach was right in the backyard! Our family enjoyed our stay and would love to stay here again!

    We had an awesome week at Zoe's Cottage. There are a few things we look for in a vacation rental, and this one has it all! A great location - sometimes we were the only people on the beach, comfy beds, good showers, a kitchen we can actually cook in, and a covered outdoor space to hang out or eat. And, as a bonus, the cottage is super cute - with lots of art and beachy decor. Walking into the front gate felt magical. The area has lots of things to do, too. The zoo, the botanical gardens, Busch Gardens, restaurants, and more! Great week at the beach!

  • Sister's weekend


    The house exceeded our expectations, beautifully decorated and came equipped with everything my 2 sisters and I needed for a lovely weekend together by the beach. The beach is right out the back gate and was quiet, peaceful and beautiful. Marida was a wonderful host, communicated well with restaurant ideas and ensuring check in went smoothly and giving us heads up about the neighborhood cat that did in fact spend the weekend on the back porch. We will be back!
